The Entrepreneurial Stories Series Launch!

The Entrepreneurial Stories Series

Today I am soooo excited to announce the launch of my Entrepreneurial Stories Series on LinkedIn!

This has been a labour of love where I enjoyed chatted with lots of entrepreneurs who are showing so much grit as they grind and grow in their respective professions.

I’m inviting you to click on this link: to participate in Chapter 1 where we chat with Rick Altman, host of the Presentation Summit and who can be found at

Rick is funny, vastly knowledgeable about all things involving presentation skills and best of all loves to chat! Hope you enjoy this conversation as much I did. Stay tuned for Chapter 2 which comes out next week Wednesday.

The Entrepreneurial Stories Series Project: Chapter 3

Carmen Spencer

Today we chatted with Carmen Spencer, Principal of Spencer Consulting International in Canada – someone who perservered when they told her she wouldn’t!

I met Carmen during a webinar where she spoke convincingly on the importance of Personal Branding, a hot topic trending at the time as more and more individuals became affected by the pandemic outbreak in 2020.

I was impressed, and after a few follow up conversations she became my coach. Now I was even more impressed with her bravery! Over the next few months she patiently guided me as I tried to figure out what to do next with my life after being unexpectedly severed.

Carmen is definitely on point in living out her company’s motto which is to help “clients discover what they know about themselves, but just need a little help uncovering!” and today actually marks the one-year anniversary of our very first coaching call – congrats Carmen, you’re a survivor 💯

Why we Should Face Pain at Work

How to Make Monday Magic: JUST LET THEM GO

A True Story

There was a manager who needed to terminate an employee who was constantly late, argumentative and way off the mark in terms of meeting the most basic of performance standards.

There had been meetings, memos and warning letters over a three month period with no improvement. Yet this manager was too afraid to terminate this employee, and so the situation continued while the reputation and morale of the team suffered.

Go on over to my LinkedIn profile to read more -> and weigh in on this week’s conversation by leaving a comment.

Remember, you too can Make Monday Magic because your #wordsmatter.
